We went to the Falcon Hospital. It is extremely interesting as you not only get acquainted with the sport of falconry, but you actually visit the animals, see how procedures are done. When we went there was a Falcon who had lost part of his feathers, and you see the procedure as to how they change the feathers. It was... More

Great tour by a well informed guide. Its like visiting a regular hospital except the patients are birds. There's the reception area, with both human and avian seats, areas for inspection and operations and anaesthesia and you are right in the thick of it. Its a working environment and plenty of birds around - I counted 20 in the second... More

Visited this wonderful place in mid October. You need to pre book your visit. Morning or afternoon. 2 hour (approx) tours. Internet booking available. They give you a brief introduction to falconry in the UAE which is very interesting BUT the best part of the visit is being in the main treatment room seeing the many falcons waiting for their...

Do not miss an opportunity to visit this working Falcon Hospital. A experience I will never forget, these wonderful and majestic falcons lined up in the waiting room awaiting there appointments is a site to behold! The tour was educational and an ability to see the birds having there check ups was a huge bonus. Could have stayed all day

To be honest Falcon hospital was one of the main reasons I wanted to visit Abu Dhabi. After watching a documentary about a clinic on a German TV some time ago I simply said to myself - that's the place I definitely would like to see. Hospital is located pretty close to Abu Dhabi Airport and relatively far from the... More

The falcon hospital is surely a must do as it exists no where else. They have two conducted tours but you need to book in advance @170AED. They accept CC but prefer cash. You will be taken around into the operation theatres where they work with the birds. A real hair raising experience. You will learn a great deal about... More

Just like any hospital. They treat between 80 - 90 Falcons per day. The tour was an absolute highlight of out stay in Abu Dhabi. We were given a lot of information by Hassan who was extremely knowledgable and entertaining. We got to see how a falcon is anaesthetised so that its tallons can be clipped and reshaped. We were...
